Title: Ocean Research Priorities Plan development-Public Comment
Note: "Ocean" includes the Great Lakes.
Ocean Research Investment:
The Development of
the Ocean Research Priorities Plan
The public comment period on the
development of the Ocean Research Priorities Plan (ORPP) is now
OPEN. We encourage all interested parties to review the planning
document and provide input.
In addition to the public comment period,
the National Science and Technology Council Joint Subcommittee on Ocean Science
and Technology is holding a public workshop on April 18-20, 2006 in Denver, CO,
to solicit input and guidance from the ocean science communities on the
development of the ORPP.
Called for in the U.S. Ocean Action Plan,
the ORPP, in conjunction with a follow-on Implementation Strategy, will describe
a vision for U.S. ocean science and technology, describe the challenges to be
addressed, identify key themes, specify goals for each theme and a time frame
for their achievement, and address implications for the use or prioritization of
resources. The draft Ocean Research Priorities Plan will be formulated using the
input from both the workshop and the public comment
Members from the research community, ocean educators,
government representatives (federal, state, tribal, and local), industry groups,
international representatives, non-governmental organizations, and any
individuals interested in helping guide national ocean research are invited to
attend the workshop and contribute to the public comment.
